{Join us for SUNDAY BRUNCH!}

The Bull Valley Roadhouse serves American roadhouse food prepared from scratch with century-old techniques using fresh ingredients from our favorite small farms. A beacon at the end of a canyon road in the historic dock town of Port Costa, the roadhouse welcomes locals, travelers and adventurous day-trippers alike in its 1897 landmark dining room and bar. Stepping into the saloon-like rooms, guests can sense more than 100 years of hospitality. The proprietors strive to maintain that warm tradition and leave everyone feeling relaxed, well fed and eager to return. Look for us under the golden bull.

Sunday brunch served from 10:30 am through 2:00 pm.

The bar makes the best cocktails using handmade ingredients and unusual blends. The restaurant has an unusual choice to go "family style", which is ordering two things from each section of the menu. The food is excellent but somewhat overpriced. $16 for toasted bread and a dip. the pork chop has restored my faith in pork chops as it was unbelievably delicious.

BVRH is the best restaurant in the region! The menu is thoughtful, food is tasty and the ambience takes you away to another era.

Brunch at BVR was fantastic! The food was superb and the creative variations on bloody Mary’s were great. The end of the road feeling of Port Costa make the food, service and setting all the more special.

Birthday celebration. The food was fabulous, our waitress was perfect. We ordered family style. We split one delicious Caesar salad, pork chop, the best I have ever had in my life! And local honey over vanilla ice cream with olive oil cake. The evening was one to remember.

The food and service live up to expectations and reviews. It's a favorite for Sunday brunch especially when seated in the patio area. I'm happy to recommend the Bull Valley Roadhouse.

Our server, DiDi(?) was phenomenal. Corinna does an awesome job with those hands. We didn’t get the chance to meet the other chef, but thank him as well for a glorious time out of great food and fun.

Thank you all for taking good care of your Patrons.

Warmly,
The group of 5 who came in on Saturday night!
